The Hope Conspiracy, a hardcore/punk rock band from Boston, MA, formed late 1999. They were picked up by Equal Vision Records and Bridge 9 Records before signing a deal with Deathwish Records. The band's fourth full-length LP is set to be released September 19, 2006.

With the help of Mark Thompson of Tortuga/Hydrahead Records, The Hope Conspiracy headed to Godcity Studios in Norwood, MA to record their first demo in November 1999 consisting of three songs ("Escapist", "Divinity Sickness", and "When the Doves Fly"). They produced 1000 copies of the tape, and managed to present 200 copies at their first demo with black and white covers (which where quickly made on the way to the gig). They then produced 800 more color copies of the demo cover based on a design by Aaron Turner. In Spring 2000, Aaron Turner brought up the idea of the demo cassette being put on CD and 7" vinyl, and the band accepted the invitation. The CD version contained one extra song, "It Meant Nothing". In both demos, the song "When the Doves Fly" was renamed to "Regret Kills". This demo is now out of print.

July 2000, The Hope Conspiracy set out recording their debut full-length entitled "Cold Blue" on Equal Vision Records. The 10 song album was recorded in a week in both Godcity Studios and in "The Outpost" in Stoughton, MA. It was released on October 23, 2000. In the next two years the band toured off of this album, contributed to the Back on Black 7" Black Flag tribute and released an album called "File 03" on Bridge 9 Records. "File 03" was a rerelease of their original demo tracks plus two new tracks (one song of original material called "No Love Goes Unpunished" and a cover of Naked Raygun's "Treason").

When it came time to record their second full-length, the band had gone through they called, "...a long overdue lineup solidification." The album, entitled "Endnote" was recorded during May and June 2002 in Brooklyn, NY's Atomic Studios. The 12 song album was produced by Dean Baltunosis and was released on October 17 2002. That November, the band produced a split album with Suicide File for which they produced a song called "Failure".

The band went on a hiatus in 2004. In that time, Kevin did vocals for Bars, while Jared played drums for None More Black. « hide
